Commonwealth senior card holders and pensioners can expect FREE entry to Sydney Olympic Park’s Aquatic Centre, EVERY Tuesday, from 8am- 3pm.
Access to the Aquatic Centre means that seniors and pensioners can do lap swimming, enjoy the spa and the river rapid ride all for FREE. For an additional cost seniors can participate in aqua aerobics classes ($14) and can detoxify in the steam room and sauna ($12).
Pensioner Tuesdays is a Government supported initiative, implemented to support seniors and pensioners looking to stay fit and healthy. Swimming offers seniors a variety of different physical benefits including strength, endurance, flexibility and agility – not to mention the psychological benefits.
While working out all the muscle groups, swimming presents little risk of injury due to its low impact and works as a preventative to future injury. As swimming builds muscle, strength and balance it reduces the risk of slips and falls and illness, all the while offering a fantastic opportunity to meet people and have fun.
The Aquatic Centre provides a range of land and aqua based activities designed specifically for people aged 50 and over. The Pensioner Tuesday program provides a great way to get that workout safely in the best aquatic centre in the country.
